Baiocco samples DFX Ducati at Imola

PSG-1 Corse refugee Matteo Baiocco will reappear on the World Superbike Championship scene after being included on the entry list for the upcoming mid-season test at Imola.

The Italian, a former Superstock 1000 front runner, had been left on the sidelines following PSG-1 Kawasaki's decision to curtail their WSBK involvement due to the ongoing economic crisis.

Nonetheless, he will test as a 'wild-card' at Imola aboard a second DFX Ducati alongside the team's regular rider Lorenzo Lanzi.

Baiocco managed to scored three points in 12 races with the PSG-1 team.

Hard times for riders... Baiocco has scored his second podium in as many races in the CIV, equalling with DF Corse's 1198R the second place he clinched with PSG-1's ZX10, but I understand he has nevertheless been dumped by the team, and Alfonso Gonzalez, better known as Fonsi Nieto, will ride the bike (with his Spanish Sponsors all over the fairing) for the next WSB race...
